Deicide: Three Killer Tracks Preamble New Album

Deicide-To-Hell-WIth-GodSweet Jesus, the progenitors of death metal, Deicide, are gearing up to unleash hell on Earth with a new album, To Hell With God (Century Media Records), on February 15th. On February 4th, the third and final sneak-peek track — “How Can You Call Yourself A God?” — was made available for public consumption, and all we can say is that it’s a blasphemous ripper.

Deicide – How Can You Call Yourself A God?

If this track, along with the two others that were released early (“Into The Darkness You Go” and “Hang In Agony Until You’re Dead”), is any indication, To Hell With God is going to reclaim Satan’s throne for Deicide, not to mention death metal supremacy. Sure, they’re in their 40s, but Glen Benton still delivers growling vocals from the bowels of hell, Steve Asheim provides pulse-pounding rhythm, and Jack Owen and Ralph Santolla shred with lyrical and bone-crushing precision. For me, the solos and the intricate drumming are the fish hooks, but the chorus is addictive and I found myself chanting it long after my first five listens. The great thing about this new track from Deicide is the fact that it remains death metal while simultaneously appealing to my thrash preferences.
